Police and fire


2nd threat found at Milford school

A week after a threat left in a bathroom stall put Milford school officials on alert, a fifth-grader has admitted to making a copycat threat, police said.

The student told Milford school officials that he was involved in writing the second threat last week in a bathroom stall, according to a statement from Town Marshal Richard Miotto.

With permission from his parents, police interviewed the boy Tuesday. The information gathered was sent to the Kosciusko County probation office and prosecutor’s office for review and possible charges, police said.

The original threat was found April 16 in a bathroom stall at the northern Kosciusko County school. The next day, authorities searched the belongings of students, staff and visitors as they entered the school, which has kindergarten through eighth grade.

Police are still investigating to determine who’s responsible for the original threat.
